A chemical plant explosion in Dayton sends thousands scrambling to evacuate. About three thousands residents living near a chemical plant were evacuated following an explosion Sunday morning. Authorities say they are concerned that debris and chemicals could spread into nearby residential neighborhoods. Firefighters are working with employees to contain a nitric oxide leak sustained from the explosion. One worker at the Isotec Plant was injured after he was knocked into a truck by the sheer force of the blast.
